from the Drudge Report

The music business suffered another embarrassment Wednesday night -- when AMERICAN IDOL's Hollywood cattle call drew a larger audience than THE GRAMMY AWARDS!

The amateur pop contest was easily the top-rated show of the night, NIELSEN claimed, with a 17.4 rating/26 share to GRAMMY's 12.3 rating/19 share.

In direct competition at 8 pm ET, IDOL hit 27 share to GRAMMY's 16 share.

[The industry's top music awards slipped from 2005 levels [12.3/19 vs. 13.2/20] early numbers show.]

With IDOL, FOX won the night over CBS: 12.7 rating/18 share to 12.5/18.

the song goes to the songwriter, the record to the artist and to the producer(s), recording engineer(s) and/or mixer(s), if other than the artist

Has HTDAAB been nominated twice since its release?

For a different performance/arrangement of One that's actually good, check out Johnny Cash's version.

My thoughts on why it's better are in the Poll thread.

Johnny Cash's version of One is the best one ever done by anyone (including U2).

The Grammys are about sentimentality, music industry politics, connections and popularity. U2, and Bono in particular, are beloved by the mainstream music industry. I think that played a huge part in their winning all those Grammys for HTDAAB.

I just hope those who believe U2 won't be tempted by all the adulation to follow the same path they've been following the past five years when they make their next album are right.

Nah...Johnny Cash's version sounds exactly what you would expect of JC singing One. karaoke does not interest me.

No, it can't. The single was nominated last year, but not the album, it didn't make the cut off date.

He's outdone some of the original artists that he's covered, but not this one. Not even close.

The Grammys mean nothing. I fail to see why people think they do. I also fail to see why U2 think they do. I'd frankly be embarrassed to be nominated alongside the likes of Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani, Weezer and Coldplay. The fact that the White Stripes won for the best alternative album is also a little absurd.

But whatever, people will continue to lap up these silly awards shows and use them to say "I told you so" to those of us who don't slobber over the ground U2 walks upon. U2's competition was, in most cases, non-existent. And the industry is known to favour them, especially in recent times. Remember, some of the greatest rock albums ever released weren't even considered for a Grammy.

I'm glad U2 had a fun last night, but I wish they wouldn't place so much importance on the event. Larry and Bono claimed that it was a "disappointment" that AB and Pop didn't fare as well. Why on EARTH do U2 need to win a Grammy and receive commercial adoration from the entire world for them to feel as though they've accomplished something? If you release a record that you feel proud of, who really gives a fuck if a bunch of record industry executives like it or not? It's disappointing to hear Larry say that it "means something."

How is his version karaoke? He has a totally different acoustic arrangement on it that U2 has never done...
